Re: 4QTherepeia

        Concerning this text (4Q360) Johann Maier notes that PAM 41.704 and
PAM 43.407 are the photographs of the text, and that it is a "Fragmente
einer Schreibuebung.  Als kurioser medizinischer Text publiziert von
Allegro.  (...)  Korrigiert und als Schreibuebung definiert durch Naveh.
(...)  Trotz einiger vorkommender Personennamen ergibt eine genaue Lesung
keinen sinnvollen Kontext".
This text, at least to me, does indeed appear to be a writing exercise of
some kind.  Garcia-Martinez lists it in his index, but simply notes that it
is, along with other fragments, partially inscribed and partially not.

Just a humble submission for your consideration.
